#2 of 9 in Parks in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk
One of the largest of its kind in the Russian Far East, Gagarin Park offers you a wealth of opportunities for enjoying the great outdoors of Sakhalin Island. Covering 89 hectares (220 acres), the park boasts lush vegetation, lakes and ponds, playgrounds, and a number of other attractions suitable for kids and adults alike. Go for a stroll along the network of footpaths that crisscross the area or, for a little more exertion, lace up your running shoes and hit the pavement. Alternatively, you can rent a paddleboat from one of the athletic and outdoor facilities that dot the park and get a new perspective of the area from the water. Don't miss hopping aboard one of the park's miniature trains, which make for quick transportation as well as a kind of unofficial tour.

  • Is a park in the large park and large ponds, amusement park, and children's railway Park, enjoy a day with my family. If you have a particularly small children enjoy the Zoo are nearby. Is good to explore a leafy Park, so bring your own bug spray, such as, even in the summer insects are enough not to care too much.
